So there is a fairly new craze called "Planking". I don't know if you are all aware of it, but it's caught on all around the world. If this is all new to you, check out the wikipedia explanation.

For a gallery of planking pictures from around the world, amuse yourself at this link:

I decided to give it a go because I think it's hilarious, and I got Lauren to come and try it out with me. These are pretty simple planks at home. Enjoy!

Hope you enjoyed those starter pictures!

What do you think of planking? And would you try it?


  1. Truthfully, I don't get it, but my brother got married last weekend and we had to take a bunch of planking pictures with the photographer. It's definitely the new craze here in the States.

  2. So funny, you both really got into the spirit of it. Should have got Peter and Rachel to do a few at their wedding. Well done you two. How about Leah does some planking too?

  3. Nice pictures honey! Funny to see Lauren doing it but I won't be doing it myself. I am too well-educated to do it! :DDD i am still thinking about doing the family planking thing! If I am in a crazy mood, maybe!

  4. Cool pictures! I really enjoyed the links, thx. I dont get it either, but it looks like so much fun!

  5. To be honest, I haven't had positive thoughts about it. Here in Australia, there was a man in Brisbane who was planking on his balcony railing and fell seven storeys down. He died, at twenty years of age.

    Your pictures are great to look at; you and Lauren look to be having fun, which is wonderful. There are just those who plank at unusual places, endangering themselves, which is not wise.

    I don't think I'll be trying planking anytime soon, but I enjoyed looking at your photos. I hope that those who are thinking of having a go at planking will view Lauren and you as examples of planking safely.

    Ninja-ing my way through life

  6. Looks like you too are good at it! Heard about this before, seems to be the new best game of the moment. Not sure I'll try but it's kind of cool to watch.

  7. Well, what should I say< You surely find out some places in your home to plank. I don't think I would do it, at my age:)

  8. I still don't get it n will never do. It just doesnt make sense to me ! Anyways, how long do you 'plank' at one time ?

  9. You should try owling next!

  10. No, I hadn't heard of planking before! It looks fine to do it in the comfort of your own home. Lauren's got it off to a fine art! LOL! Some good shots there.

  11. Planking, what planking? We had been doing it when very young as something naughty or to draw the adults' attention. For someone to claim that he "invented" planking is really silly and frivolous. Imagine an adult like Tom Green staking a claim to this "invention"! Really Laughable. But nice pictures of you two planking though.

  12. Paul, my sister got married at the weekend too and she really should have taken some planking pictures!

    Mum, you'll see the Leah planking pics soon! As for owling, everyone does that here - it's just called squatting!

    Fidelia, I got you to do it on the same day!

    Barbara, Jaya J, there's not really too much to 'get' - just having fun :)

    Michelle, I heard about that incident too. One does need to exercise some common sense whilst doing it. I would say if there is any doubt, just don't do it!

    Marie, Diane, glad you enjoyed the pictures - it can be very amusing!

    Traveling Hawk, you are still young enough to go travelling around the world :)

    ordinary malaysian, people could have been doing this for fun centuries ago!
